Gotta "feelin" you have the best prediction here.

Going to PMA?

Carl
Actually Benjikan's history of predictions which he has made publicly on these forums hasn't been great... I am sure he has a better idea of what's coming than he lets on but two instances I remember off the stop of my head were a thread on FF coming in Sept 2008 and the initial hype around the K20D being a touch overstated in places. Maybe he just gets excited

Neither of them are owned by pentax, and why would pentax register a .org domain name anyhow?

It's a neighborhood of 2-3 story buildings, mostly apartments but a few small shops. The address is the home of the Assyrian National Council of Illinois.

Shakeel Aslam seems to be a Chicago-based individual who is listed as the contact for multiple domain names, none of which seem to be related to photography.

Would someone else please weave this data into an intriguing Pentax story? Conspiricy fans are welcome to apply.

Unfortunately, it means nothing. Both sites looked to be owned by entities completely unassociated with Pentax. But you never know...

Well, Hanoi is in Vietnam, where some Pentax stuff is made? I think the Chicago/Assyrian connection might be harder to puzzle out.

Good chance these are just outfits that try to sell any given domain name someone might want to use.

I predict that Pentax will release a new FRY* 2/3rds deep fryer to go head to head against the Gorge Foreman grill. I've heard a rumour that dpreview will give it a negative review as it won't accomodate a 42 pound turkey.......or there was something about a camera....I can't remember which.

Frankly, I just hope they don't change the K20's body style, apart from maybe sticking a finder-that's-as-big-as-it-needs-be-no-worries on there.

SR? Heck with SR. This is about the smoothest-releasing camera I've ever handled, this K20. I've taken to turning the SR *off* until the arthritis catches up, and then being like, 'Haha! *flip.* '


Hope they don't mess with *that.*
